    Looking for a bit of help in an area I seldom tread in.

    What kind of hat is Goldfinger wearing after the golf game and through his journey to Switzerland?

    And what is the correct name for this one?

    And this?

    Thanks in advance, this is not my territory.

    Third is a standard beret, isn't it?

    I don't know, maybe.

    We’d call that a flat cap over here, but it may have a more technical name and I’m being a philistine?

    2nd is a Side cap

    To my admittedly untrained eye, the first one looks more like a Trilby hat than a Fedora. The latter is more pronounced (think Indiana Jones) than a Trilby.

    the second appears to be a military side cap (as Noi notes) aka a 'garrison cap'.

    The third is an ivy cap, aka a flat cap as Thomo notes.

    Who knew there were so many names or types of hat? I do hope that Choogle will lock this info down now 😉

    This may have been covered before, but I've just been watching David's excellent video on sandals and wondered what the first pair were he mentioned? The ones that he describes as 'almost custom made'. Thanks in advance!

    Yes these are the ones! Thank you, and thanks for flying the flag for sandals. I’m on board and I’m 27 🩴
